can do both. i think romney is doing both and romney -- watching him right now is watching him go through the different phases of romney, 509s shades of romney shall we say. >> that's exactly what they have thought. so people have talked about this a lot. the notion of they were kind of a fork in the road in the spring. do we want to run against him as a flip flopping phony or run against -- coreless, their pitch before, or do we want to cast him as a right wing radical. they seemed to and did make a decision to do right wing radical and one on throughout. i talked about david plouffe about this in may and he said we're going do both when we have to. we're going to say mitt romney there he goes trying to flip flop, coreless a phony, but not forget where he actually is, and then this is -- we're going to keep trying to pin him back to these positions he's taken. i think they have been horrible since the debate, the obama campaign. they are -- jon ward understates the degree to which they are knocked off guard and they are flailing right now and the stuff they're saying, the big bir
difference and how they would approach medicare in the long run. both sides were spinning a lot. >> i want to bring in brent colburn. good morning to you. >> thanks for having me on. >> let me start with eric. you know him, senior advisor to the romney campaign. ryan, serious, sober, steady. biden, smirking, mocking, immature. did joe biden act appropriately last night? >> i don't know what debate eric was watching last night. for everyone else in america, they saw a different vision of both candidates. you saw from the vice president a passionate advocate, a man who had command of the facts and command of the plans the president and him have for the future of the country. you saw somebody light on substance and wouldn't answer questions. there was a lot of mullarkey being thrown around. that is joe biden every day out on the stump. >> one of the most searched terms over the last 12 hours is mullarkey. let me read something from "the new york times." if mr. biden was sometimes openly emotional, a hot onscreen presence, mr. ryan, 27 years his junior was cooler, often coming off confident an
in the debate with mitt romney, they're both willing to say and do anything to become president and vice president. and they're a little fast and loose with the facts. that's a lesson we've learned. we've been holding their feet to the fire over the last ten days. and we're going to continue to do that. the president included. >> the president says he was a little too polite last time. maybe he'll be less polite this time. here's another little exchange that the vice president had with paul ryan. i'm going to play some of these clips. >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the current medicare advantage coverage they have, that's a $3,200 benefit cut -- >> more people -- >> these are from your own actuaries. >> more people signed up for medicare advantage after the change. >> it's a plan i put together with a prominent democratic senator from oregon -- >> there's not one democrat that endorses it. not one democrat who signed the plan -- >> mr. vice president i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground, but i think we would be better serv
room. the role of the vice president has changed considerably, and i would give credit to both romney and obama for picking a vice presidential nominee that not only could help them get elected but could help them govern. i think these are both, to a degree, responsible selections in that respect. i think no matter who wins, we will see either ryan for biden -- or biden play a significant role over the next four years. >> we are previewing the upcoming debate in danville, kentucky, and throwing in some vice-presidential trivia all along the way. let me share with you one of the mamas from 2010 during the height of the health-care debate, a meeting that took place at blair house across the street from the white house, and comments by then congressman ryan on the health care bill and the vice-president. >> the bill has 10 years of tax increases, about $500 billion, with 10 years of medicare cuts, about $500 billion, to pay for six years of spending. what is the true 10-year cost of this bill? in 10 years, that is $2.3 trillion. it does a couple of other things -- it takes $52 billion in

which values. let me tell you about the mitt romney that i know. >> incredible. >> you both saw benjamin netanyahu hold up the picture of a bomb with a red line through it. >> thank heavens we have the sanctions in place, and it is in spite of their opposition. all i have to point to is the results. they are four years closer to a nuclear weapon. look, did they come in and inherit a bad situation? absolutely. we are going in the wrong direction. slower than last year, and that was slower than the year before. august was slower than it was in july. >> the republican national committee is responsible for the content of this advertisement. host: next up on "washington journal," getting your reaction to the debate, back. ohio. your opinion of last night? caller: last night was awesome. i think vice president joe biden did an awesome job. last week when the debate was with the president of the united states, president barack obama and governor mitt romney, mitt romney was very rude. he was rude to the president. he was rude to america. i am one of the 47%. i am 55 years old. i started working
. but this one could be different. there is pressure on both men, congressman ryan to keep mitt romney's momentum going, and vice president biden to stop that momentum. the moderator tonight is martha raddatz, and for this debate the candidates will be seated at the table. >> good evening, and welcome to the first and only vice presidential debate of 2012s sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. i'm martha raddatz of abc news, and i am honored to moderate this debate between two moan who have dedicated much of their lives to public service. tonight's debate is divided between domestic and foreign policy issues. and i'm going to move back and forth between foreign and domestic since that is what a vice president or president would have to do. we will have nine different segments. at the beginning of each segment, i will ask both candidates a question, and they will each have two minutes to answer. then i will encourage a discussion between the candidates with follow-up questions. by coin toss, it has been determined that vice president biden will be first to answer the opening questio
part a home away from home for both the obama and the romney campaigns. they're spending a lot of time here, a lot of money here because of the role that ohio may ultimately play and who wins this election come november 6. last night mitt romney and paul ryan played to a large crowd in lancaster, ohio. there was a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of excitement in the air. and in large part because they believe the republicans believe they've won these first two debates. governor mitt romney had a pretty strong performance out in denver ten days ago. paul ryan had a pretty solid performance two nights ago down in kentucky. but that excitement and energy notwithstanding there's a lot of work left to be done for this ticket here in ohio. the president still shows a lead here in ohio, even though that lead has been chipped into over the last week or two, by about half in some of these polls. putting mitt romney within striking distance of the president. now, he may still, mitt romney may still have a challenge, a hurdle to clear with some undecided voters here. and that's surrounding this auto bai
for the white house, the day after the vice- presidential debate and both sides are claiming they have one. romney is claiming that biden get to a cover-up about the murder of the u.s. ambassador and three others in libya. we of our commitment to a thousand of them date from cincinnati tonight. hi, steve. >> good evening from cincinnati, ohio. in a keyboard or roasted, this is a great place to eat and a great place to gauge the effect of last night's debate. the election could hinge on hamilton county, ohio. this is a local lunch favorite, but they are switching between parties. republicans are relieved today. >> last night's debate? >> congressman ryan held his own. >> i will vote for obama. period. last night just convinced me. >> paul ryan was up beat this morning. >> job growth in september was lower than august. "joe biden smiled a lot. some say condescendingly. >> 5.2 million new private- sector jobs. >> he denied they covered up an al qaeda attack. >> the intelligence committee told us that. as they learn more fact, they changed their assessment. >> president obama was pleased. >> i
in the way tonight of governor romney's success. >> and jon karl, you covered both these men on capitol hill. they both seemed to bring their own a-games, very different kinds of games and i nope you are also looking at the facts right here. did you see any kind of glaring factual misstatements? >> well, i think there was a lot of back and forth, frankly, it's going to be difficult to untangle. these come from different views on the views of tax cuts, but i've got to tell you something, george. i'm here in what we call spin alley. this is where all the top people for each campaign are going around and giving their take on what the -- what happened in this debate. and it is entirely different than what we saw at the last debate where, if you remember, the romney folks were out in force, talking about what a great debate they had and the obama team came in very briefly and left. in this case, the obama people are out in force, they are thrilled with biden's performance. they like the passion. they are calling him the happy warrior. i just spoke to obama's campaign manager who said this was a c
will perform under pressure. >> thanks for your call. both campaigns this year are very active on social media. the romney campaign sent out this picture just before we began. it is of the gop candidate call- in his vice presidential nominee to wish him good luck in the debate tonight. next up is a telephone call from barbara in north carolina, an independent. go ahead, please. >> i think the vice president is very important. like the caller just said, we need to know how will the country be run if anything was to happen to the president. i think joe biden and barack obama have done an outstanding job. i already know who i am going to vote for. >> what issue is most important to you this year in the election? >> health care. mitt romney and paul ryan want to take everything from us, and i don't think that is bare. -- out of think that is fair. >> speaking of politics, let's go to the other side of the aisle and introduce you to the colleget of cedntre democrats. he is a history major and government maj. we like those kind of majors at c-span here, mr. miller. thanks for being with us. >> thank
there is really no bigger national security. >> absolutely. >> reporter: this country is facing. both president obama and governor romney have said they will prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. even if that means military action. last week, former defense secretary bob gates said a strike on iran's facilities would not work and, quote, could prove catastrophic, haunting us for generations. can the two of you be absolutely clear and specific to the american people how effective would a military strike be? congressman ryan? >> we cannot allow iran to gain a nuclear weapons capability. now, let's take a look at where we have come from. when barack obama was elected, they had enough nuclear material to make one bomb. now they have enough for five. they are racing for a nuclear weapon, they are four years closer. we have had four sanctions on iran, three from the bush administration, one here. and the only reason we got it is because russia watered it down and prevented the sanctions from hitting the central bank. mitt romney proposed the sanctions in 2007 in congress. i have been fighting f
by on your side is the fact that both governor romney and congressman ryan say we are not going to make any cuts in the defense budget. it is the largest single piece of the federal budget, and i don't know any chief petty officer or master sergeant for that matter who wouldn't say, look, there are some ways to find some savings here without diminishing in any way our capacity to protect the national security of the united states. is it completely off the table? and if it is, how do you ever get to the deficit reduction that you need to without making some of the trims and making it more efficient? >> no, tom, it's never been completely off the table, and it's just not an accurate statement. we have always said that everything should be on the table. and i, for one, would never say you can defend every dollar and cent being spent at the pentagon. but what we do know right now is the question before us is is looming sequester. and that has serious implications so far as our ability as americans to be seeming a global power because if that sequester hits, i don't think there's any question th
considerably and i think that both i would give credit to romney and obama for picking a vice presidential nominee that cannot only help them get elected but could help them gerch. i think they are responsible selections in that respect. and i think no matter who wins this. we're going see either ryan or biden play a significant role or the next four years. >> we of course, previewing the upcome vice presidential debate taking place on the campus of centere college. let me share with both of you one of the moment from february 2010 during the height of the health care debate a meeting took place that bare house across the street from the white house and comment by then congressman paul ryan on the health care bill and the vice president. >> the bill has ten years of tax increases about a half trail collars. with ten years of medicare cuts about half trillion dollars to pay for six years of spending. what's the true ten year cost of the bill? that's $2.3 trillion. it does a couple of other things. it takes $52 billion in higher social security tax revenue and counts them as off sense but th
's one family that i met that put their kids through college with that one. the other family that both the husband and wife worked there. they're not going to be able to send their kids to dance lessons for god's sake. and this is mitt romney's way of making money. >> and no doubt about it. >> america has to see this, ed. america has to see this. this can't be the america we're heading to. we have to stop this from happening. >> we will continue to stay on this story. leo gerard of the steelworkers. again, a nonunion shop in freeport, illinois. the union is just speaking up for these workers. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. great job quarterbacking the show last night. i used to be a quarterback, but i'm just your offensive lineman right now. i kind of -- i really do enjoy that, by the way. >> ed, there is nothing offensive about you anymore. thank you. it was a great night. i am so looking forward to tuesday, i can hardly stand it. usually i look forward to the weekend. now i just can't help but look forward to the
-- ryan: absolutely. >> moderator: -- this country is facing. both president obama and governor romney have said they will prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon, even if that means military action. last week former defense secretary bob gates said a strike on iran's facilities would, quote, not work and prove catastrophic, haunting us for generations. can the two of you be absolutely clear and specific to the american people how effective would a military strike be? congressman ryan? ryan: we cannot allow iran to gain a nuclear weapons capability. now, let's take a look at where we've come from. when barack obama was elected, they had enough fissile material, talk about lahr material to make one bomb, now they have enough for five. they're racing toward a nuclear weapon. they're four years closer to nuclear weapons capability. we've had sanctions for four years, and the only reason we got it is because russia watered it down and prevented the sanctions from hitting the central bank. mitt romney proposed these things in 2007, in congress i've been fighting for these things since 20
, but when you complain like this, it really is one of the ways that you can tell you're losing. on both sides. look, last week, even during the presidential debate between president obama and mitt romney, the obama campaign tried to push on twitter the idea that mitt romney was being inappropriately testy. they tried so hard to push the testy mitt idea. they tried so hard to make that into a thing that people should feel about that debate. >> he got testy about it. he got testy about being on defense. i think that came across to the american people. >> a testy governor romney who spent the entire time on defense. >> i think for some folks at home it probably came across a little testy. >> yeah, no. nice try. i mean, maybe mitt romney was testy, at the presidential debate, and maybe joe biden did laugh in paul ryan's face all night at the vice presidential debate. but that is in part because these guys, mitt romney and joe biden, were pumped and they were pumped because they were obviously winning their debates. and complaining about that does not change that. but the other person who wa
against his budget. to say romney has to be the bigger standard than obama. >> obama put up a plan. >> we have to end this here. you certainly make tonight more interesting. >> absolutely. the debate continues. nice to see both of you. >>> and we want to go now to an update i should say of that girl whose become a hero around the world. this 14-year-old girl shot by the pakistani taliban for speaking out against them. a source inside pakistan's intelligence community tells that two people including an important suspect are now in custody. the source would not say if either of them is the gunman. elizabeth palmer is reporting from islamabad. >> reporter: malala yousufzai is still unconscious, she's on a ventilator in a military hospital near islamabad. but a family friend scribes a brain scan is offering a ray of hope. a single bullet entered her head but only grazed her brain and lodged in her chest cavity. doctors did surgery to relieve the appreciate. the next 36 hours are critical to her survival and well being. all of pakistan is outraged at this act of violence. there's been vigils i
for obama. i was looking at both sides before. i thought what is going on, who is seen what? to me, mitt romney is not honest with people. he flip flops so much, he says so many things, one day this, one day that. he changes so much. you cannot trust a person like that to run for president. another thing is people blame the president because they cannot find a job. i am sorry. when you need the money, you do anything. i washed dishes. we do whatever to get by. i have found other jobs so i can live a stable life. you cannot blame it on a president like that. host: did you just recently registered to vote? caller: yes. host: what was the process like in nebraska? caller: i do not know. it is ok. caller: i don't know. it was ok. host: where are you from? caller: i'm from thailand. host: thank you for calling. vance, tell us why you are a first-time voter. caller: just for the most part, and overthrow -- and on the road toward garver having difficulty making it to the polls. host: why is this election the when you are going to vote in? host: -- caller: i am working locally this time, so i ca
security issue in this country. both president obama and governor romney said it will prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons even if that means military action. last week, former defense secretary said a strike on iran's facility would not work and could prove catastrophic, haunting us for generations. can the two of you be absolutely clear and specific to the american people how was that would military strike be? >> we cannot allow iran to gain nuclear weapons capability. let's take a look that where we have come from. when barack obama was elected, they had enough material to make one bomb. now they have enough for five. they are four years closer towards nuclear weapons capability. we have had four different sanctions. the only reason we got it was because of russia watered it down. mitt romney proposed these sanctions in 2007. the administration was blocking us every step of the way. only because we had strong bipartisan support for these tough sanctions were we able to overrule the objections and put them in in spite of the administration. look at what they are doing. they're st
point, if they attack, you want them -- they both should be attacking upwards. >> they'll either both attack up, or, and this is bad for the principals, they may just get along having a civil conversation, not helping president obama or mitt romney. so they have to be contentious toward the guy at the top. >> one thing that hasn't been talked about so far is poor people. one of the things -- we talk about the middle class being destroyed. it's important that we remember that paul ryan actually has something to say about poor people. he wants to take away nutritionaprograms, i think if you want to talk about what's happening in scranton, what will help people in scranton is not what paul ryan is talking about. >> the debate is about to start. wolf? >> only a few seconds away from the start of the debate. a 42-year-old republican vice presidential nominee, a 69-year-old sitting vice president of the united states. two very, very different men. they've both been preparing almost nonstop the last few days, but preparing for weeks and weeks and weeks. paul ryan making it clear that he's go
is that both sides agree with the 2014 plan to leave afghanistan, but that the romney and ryan side is making it conditional whereas the obama/biden side is making it definite. is that the distinction that vice president biden was trying to describe tonight? >> that's exactly right. it's a key distinction. the longest war in american history. the american people want those troops to come home. they want to turn over to the afghans the responsibility. you should have seen the needle jump on those networks that were following it with proud reaction when joe biden made that clear. finally, after two or three times hitting on it, paul ryan backed off of it. the fact is there. romney's been talking about conditions. the president and the vice president have said they're coming home 2014. >> why did vice president biden hammer paul ryan tonight on the issue of him requesting stimulus funds for his district? i get that he caught him in a little bit of hypocrisy, but he's not realistically criticizing paul ryan for having asked for funds that the democratic side maintains has worked well? >> here's p
